Captain Jim Lee

Captain Lee was born and raised in St. Louis, MO and discovered his passion for sailing at a young age. After graduating from the University of Missouri, he moved to St. Petersburg, FL where he lived onboard his 34' Catalina for 8 years while working in Corporate America. He spent much of his free time sailing up and down the Florida gulf coast and throughout the Caribbean. He finally decided to pursue his passion full time and traded in his shirt and tie for a USCG 50 ton Masters Captain license and hasn't looked back since.

First Mate Pete MOttl (engineer)

Pete and Captain Lee first met in college back in 1994 at the University of Missouri – Go Tigers!!! Throughout the years they stayed in touch and a couple of years ago Jim was visiting Megan and Pete and they came up with the plan to buy a boat, and follow a dream.  Pete has always enjoyed working on boats and fixing mechanical and technical issues, his education was in computer science. He is Soulshine’s Operations Manager and takes great pride in keeping Soulshine a well-maintained boat for the safety and enjoyment of our guests.

Chef/First mate Megan Kenobbie

Megan first came to St. John 4 years ago with her boyfriend Pete (yep the same guy).  She has always enjoyed hiking, outdoors, swimming and being warm. She was excited to leave her corporate career last year to join the crew of Soulshine as Chef and First mate. She loves entertaining and cooking for people and ensuring each guest feels like they had a vacation of a lifetime. Her goal is to create an awesome atmosphere full of fun, delicious food and lasting memories.
